“The 2018 Arrested Potential, Inc. At-Risk Children golf tournament at Pinecrest Country Club was a huge success this year. After having lost most of our computer lab inventory from Hurricane Matthew, this year was perfect, for the weather was perfect and we had exciting news to share regarding our reopening of the computer lab in the Fall of 2018. We’re already looking forward to next year’s event,” Gene Jones, the chief executive officer, said.
Winners of the tournament were James Powers, Daniel Bullock, B.J. Johnson and Tom Jones. Dwight Whitted, Earl Swann, Billy Thompson and Leroy West came in second place, while Donald Tanner, J. Scurlock, Dr. Michael Holland and Derrick McCarter finished third.
